Thismorning, whenI was about toleave the underground, Ithought:"It can not rainforever." The strange thingis thatwhenIthoughtthe sky was stillclear (but I wasinformedof "the future"by thenewsweather). Thisafternoon theskywasquicklycovered withhugegray cloudsandcame downso much water that it seemedthe day... night.
Someof you may rememberthe sentence of the titlebecause it was sayed inthe film"TheRaven", that becamea cult classicthanksto "her"andhis protagonist.
Some timeagoa cinema's magazine haslaunched aquiz among readers.Purpose?Find out whichfeatureswere most ofthefilms seen. Thatcrowhas settledamong the firstplaces.
In fact, I remember thatnot only todaybut many yearsago whenthe film was released(1994),wasfull ofdiarieswritten with that sentencein a thousanddifferent styles. It'a phrasesostriking,thatcomes into mind. But what isso specialto becomea slogan,a motto,a philosophyof life(even)for severalgenerations?
Mymemory of the filmis related tosomething dark. It wassad,nowyoucouldcall itmaybea little"emo". Themain character wasalways dressedin black, andhis storywas tragic. Hissaying"can notrainforever"wouldbea sortof encouragement(perhaps)to never give upeven when it seemsthat everything goesthe wrong way.
I nevermentionedthat sentenceas the words"cult"of a movie. Thefirst timeI saw it I was 11years old andeven thenI did not likesad stories, andone color. Even now, when I think,I do not findmuch sensein that sentence. That it can notrainforeverit seemsobviousandit seems to meenclosinga thought"submissive".
Sinceyou can notcontrol therain (andevents),I can justkeep quiet...itstillwill.What i really can do?
Of courseif it rainswe cannotdo much.But nowadayswe havesobeautifulumbrellasand somecoloredbootsoutwalkingin the rain,at times,it isalso nice. It can not rainforever butI canstill goforward. Thisiswhat I think.
Themerit of the people hascreated andplaced it in the filmis that it still tobeable to enterthe popular imagination.
Andyou, did you rememberthat phrase? Whatmeaning hasfor you?
